Life on the Farm

These past couple weekends, Piper has been having fun on her "farm". 
{Also known as having fun in our backyard.}

In our vegetable garden this year, we are growing zucchini, yellow squash, string beans, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and pumpkins.

I have decided to add to my list of hobbies and learn a little more about canning. My husband canned while growing up, so he knows a lot about it. I have only canned once, and it was with him a few years ago. I bought a new canning book this weekend called "Can It!" and I'm excited to learn more!

I'm already dreaming about harvest, but I'm enjoying the season we're in so much! We are having lots of fun and summer hasn't even officially started yet. Where's the pause button when you need it?

P.S. Please don't tell anyone but I think I have a major crush on Piper's dad. He's pretty amazing.

Readers, have you ever canned before? What do you love to can? Do you have any canning book recommendations?

  1. Run straight to the interwebs and find a Ball Canning Book, newest version. Put out by Ball Jar Company, and has aaaallllllll the basics you could ever need. Also, be aware that many of the glass-top stoves aren't suitable for canners or large pressure cookers. Have fun! (And Piper's dad is pretty neat!). Deb
